Can't post a link from work or else I would. Should be easy enough to find, though.
Especially down under.
Naked and Famous have a bit of it (though I think they are from NZ?). Van She Strange Talk Midnight Juggernauts (a bit older)
I bet there are other ones, but there is a strong scene right now, and they seem to love that style. Temper Trap is another Aussie band, but I've expressed my discontent with their latest album enough on here.

Gold Fields is another Aussie band that has a retro thing going on. I believe I have posted their track Dark Again before. I love that song. The 80s-retro style is hit and miss for me. For instance, I unfortunately wasn't really feeling (on first listen) many of the other Atlas Genius tracks. Given my excitement for everything they had put out to this point, that left me quite disappointed.
Through the Glass was my favorite of the previously unreleased tunes, too.
I do have Spotify (free) but I don't use it much. I use SoundCloud a lot because it's mobile app is free, and most indie bands (lot of the stuff I listen to) use it as a means to get their music out there, so it's easy to make a playlist on the go.

Love the quote at the bottom of your post. Congrats on finding a sentence in that movie that can be posted on this board without a censored word. Despite Farrel's feelings though going to Bruges is definitely a goal for me, I've gotta get some trappist ales from the source.

This is another one of my personal favorites of the Tiny Desk concerts. Some people on here may know that I generally feel the same way about Chris Thile that MIG feels about Atlas Genius . I love this "supergroup" and Thile kills it. The man won a damn MacArthur Genius Grant for just playing mandolin. The other cool thing about this video is that everyone in it is arguably the best person in the world at playing their respective instruments.
